    I am wanting to use this plugin, it look great. However when i look at the developers web site http://www.modulaweb.fr/portail/ i see that the images or the text in the plugin are not the same ones in the post itself. I am failing to see where i add images and text to the plugin to show on my site. please help! i recognise this is very simple but i am completely new to wordpress and coding.

    thankyou

    When you add or edit a post, look under the editor, you will see a special zone called "Frontpage-Slideshow options" : put all special informations that you want to see on slideshow here. You dont need to code anything, all functions got an interface

    I knew it was going to be something nice and simple. Thanks for that. I just need to get my head around how WP works. My site is getting there, all i need to do now is try and make it go faster! But her there will be another thread for that somewhere i'm sure.

    Thanks Jeff.

    Thanks for that!

    Just a follow up if i may:
    having now added it to my front page and now have 2 posts with links there are 2 things that i cannot do.

    1. Is there anyway i can add HTML to the slide comment I was trying to add this: Follow our Christmas meditations at Rochford Community Church <b> click here for more details </b> and all it did was stop it working!

    The next things is i have the show buttons set to no but when the slideshow transitions between images you get a flicker of the side button comment and title. This just doesn't seem to be that professional looking. Is there anything i can do to stop this?

    You can, of course, add random HTML code on slide comments like I did on my own website, but if the slide show stop working it may be because the code you added was not well formed... look at the source code for a not closed tag or javascript error that can put in a way to know and fix it.

    Concerning the apparition of buttons, you got to fix the sizes of image to 100% and button one to 0% under the size and position section.
